Arrow IC731 {12/7/19} Mackenzie-Childs

Good Saturday Morning! Welcome to December & the Inspiration Challenge!

This week we're headed off to Mackenzie-Childs. They have some gorgeous items & lovely displays. You may either use pictures from their Store or from their Pinterest Board. Please be sure to link us up to what inspired you.

IC731 Gallery

Use Keyword: IC731

Here's my card: Silver Wreath

Did you know, we have an Inspiration Challenge Pinterest Board?Be sure to check it out!

**Please note: We've had to change things up a bit as far as displaying photos from some sites. Please go to their Pinterest Board for easy access to inspiration photos if you are unable to view this site in your country. **

How to Play ~ Visit the site link or Pinterest Board. You may be inspired to recreate the pieces ~ but that isn't necessary ... get your inspiration from the colors, layout, style or 'theme'. Just enjoy wherever your inspired creative journey takes you. Remember, please do not use print-outs of the art or items in your creation or directly copy their work. Make the inspiration piece your own. Don't worry ~ no card is 'wrong' and there is no time limit for uploading your card for the challenge. There are no rules ~ be *inspired* and go get stamping!

Don't forget about No Upload Sunday - Let's give the gallery moderators a day off and not upload on Sunday (unless, of course, you are a Fan Club member - yet another reason to spend a little money on your favorite site). Also, remember to link to your SCS gallery on this thread. Thank you for joining us on this inspiration journey.

NEED HELP LINKING A CARD? FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Open 2 windows. One for your card, one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type what you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your card window, highlight the address for your card. (The address bar will say
//www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...stampers.....)
4. Click edit. Click Copy.
5. Go back to this thread. Click Paste.


NEED HELP GETTING A LINK TO YOUR INSPIRATION PICTURE?

If you are unable to grab the link of your chosen picture, (on some sites, you can't, it only gives a link to the whole collection), hover over the picture in the collection that you want to link to. On a windows machine, right click the picture (on a Mac, 2 finger click). When the options come up, select COPY IMAGE ADDRESS. This link will be for that picture.

all those black and white checks and harlequins really caught my eye so, mind kind of went off on its own but, it started out from this simple holly sprig

GREAT site, Julie. I love Mackenzie-Child and have been lucky enough to have been gifted several pieces. Fun, hand painted wares for the most part. Thanks for the inspiration.

Since I had my plaid stamp out, I decided to make another card.

Cool IC731 F4A411 winter's greetings

Julie- wonderful inspiration site, thank you! As I am still on East Coast time after our vacation to Disney World- which inspired this card- I am up quite early, but wanted to create a card with snowflakes and some pretty embellishments. I was inspired by the Snowflake Beaded Pillow- combined this challenge with yesterday's Any Holiday Except Christmas challenge- and went with a winter-themed card. My background is done with watercolor powders, and I layered on these amazing pewter snowflake shapes from my stash for top and bottom frames for my central panel. Added a distressed hand written sentiment block, and finished with a 3 bow and single button embellishment. Here's winter's greetings

Had a flower stuck in my head (it is still there - lol) and had to make another card:

Combined it with the Technique challenge.
